The Clerk’s House


Blackhorse Lane Ateliers is London’s only craft jeans maker, growing a #CraftJeansRevolution in Walthamstow, London since April 2016. This month, Blackhorse Lane opens their first denim concept shop in London’s Shoreditch neighbourhood.

As with any effort that Blackhorse Lane takes on, the primary goal is to inspire more makers. To this end, the shop will contain London’s first denim haberdashery, where one can purchase everything they need to make or repair their own jeans at home. This is an extension of Blackhorse Lane’s successful denim masterclasses.

The space will also host Blackhorse Lane’s upcoming made-to-measure service. This will provide discerning customers with the chance to have a custom pair of jeans made featuring Blackhorse Lane’s unique mix of tailoring innovation and heritage construction.

Blackhorse Lane will also launch a pre-order service, where one can purchase limited edition garments of exceptional fabrics or styles before manufacture. The customer will benefit from a reduced price, and Blackhorse Lane will benefit from using less materials – a win-win situation.

The concept shop stocks all of Blackhorse Lane’s ready-to-wear collection of women’s jeans, men’s jeans, jackets, and bags. A vintage Union Special machine is on-site for hemming, and a vintage Singer machine for repairs. Both services are free of charge for Blackhorse Lane garments.
